Superhet Receiver Card

This practical resource allows students to investigate the principles and operation of a working superheterodyne receiver, through a range of practical activities.

Practical tasks include the following:
  • Measuring the intermediate frequency (IF) and local oscillator (LO) frequency of a superhet receiver
  • Exploring the radio frequency (RF) amplifier
  • Measuring the bandwidth of an intermediate amplifier stage
  • Measuring tuned gain of an intermediate amplifier stage
  • Recognizing the function performed by a multistage IF amplifier
  • Determining the need for automatic gain control (AGC)
  • Observing the operation of AGC

Please note that this card requires access to an Electronics Study Trainer (320-00).
